I am a big fan of Medicom’s MAFEX line of figures for the Dark Knight trilogy. When the Cop version of the Joker dropped down to $30 at Entertainment Earth I quickly scooped one up. Lately, Medicom has been inching the prices up on newer figures making the decision to add certain figures a little harder. This was one of those figures. I would have never see myself getting the cop version on its own. Why would someone want the cop version of the Joker that appears on the screen for less than a minute? Or a regular Bruce Wayne with a recycled Harvey Dent body? Well it’s because Medicom has been adding accessories for previous figures in later ones to make them more appealing to collectors. So, in this particular case, I was after the cop version for the alternate arms and head for my previously purchased Joker figure.
Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is my favorite and I’m committed MAFEX to build my collection. The reason, although pricey, they bring us the most figures from the trilogy. Not only are they updating previous releases, they are constantly adding new additions. Those new additions often come with awesome accessories for previously released figures. There is a perfect example here with the new Bruce Wayne. Currently up for pre-order at bigbadtoystore.com, they are due to ship March of 2019. Check out the descriptions and promo photos below.
